Some members of a health club were having their first meeting. The director of the group said:

“Now, I’d like each of you to give the facts of your daily routine.”

Several people spoke, admitting their excesses, and then one obviously overweight members said,

“I eat moderately, I drink moderately, and I exercise frequently.”

“Hmm?” said the manager. “And are you sure you having nothing else to add?”

“Well, yes,” said the member. “I lie extensively.”
